Head鈥檚 up friends.

If you currently have cantaloupe in your home and you live in Canada or America, please read this.

An echo would be appreciated.

Love,

Please see your warnings as well that include other fruit.

Anything that touches an infected fruit must be cleaned thoroughly from bags to counters.

Also, this is why we need to support small family farms instead of agribusiness.

It's so easy to transfer those germs into the edible inside when cutting open fruit like cantaloupes. BUT...it's just as easy to give them a thorough rinsing before cutting. Stay safe, everyone!

It鈥檚 difficult to throw food away, but I think it鈥檚 for the best.

I tossed one I had already cut and removed the rind from.

Better safe than sorry.

I always wash cantaloupe in soapy dishwater before cutting it. A food inspector told me to do that. He said it was one of the most likely culprits for a food borne illness.
